We're going to do what we must; keep our dearest values close to us, dispel the lies of the neo-cons as we are faced with them and, above all, persevere in the knowledge that life is an inherently GOOD experience and that the spiritual evolution of humanity is as inevitable as the dawning of the new day, despite the increasingly desperate efforts of those who are obsessed with worldly power and material wealth.
p.s. We love you Bruce!!!

That's a fine post, Bruce. I think we may move forward the most rapidly if we state the strongest neocon arguments we can find or imagine, then counter them -- avoiding ad hominem arguments unless we know for pretty sure that the particular neocon involved is crafty and not just doing his/her best, "arguing with the mental tools you have, not the ones you wish you had."

Dear Bruce,

I just wanted to thank you for the tireless work you are doing to protect the skies and raise the awareness of weapons in space. I was listening to Dr. Michio Kaku this weekend on KPFK and you both inspire me to educate myself and continue talking about this to others. I tend to get overwhelmed and depressed about this too but seeing you out there continuing the good fight inspires me. Thank you again!

Congratulations! (I knew it was
only a matter of time... "Pod-
casting" can only be next!)
When will they get the damned
$85 million interceptors to work
as well as the "Patriot" missile...??? [;-)]
"Millions for defense, but not a penny for your thoughts..." Good luck... James

Blogging is a great opportunity for individuals to air their views. We cannot rely on the media currently to bring us accurate reporting, so possibly, we can bring awareness to people who rely on institutions whose goals are to control the thoughts rather than offer a choice. I find it a great irony that the US military developed the internet to serve its needs, and it has become a tool that can mobilize power from the disenfranchised.

As a beginning, I encourage the reading of a book, Biblical Religion, the Great Lie, by Michael Kalopoulos. His book draws on the history and lore of the ancient Mediterranean cultures and how they have been adapted to convince people to believe fiction to be fact.

the author suggests that our behavior is taken directly from the perpetuation of myths. Summarized, we justify amoral behavior by faith in a process that allows one to ignore any moral constraints as long as one is a professed believer. Have a look.

At the risk of sounding totally superficial, I love your layout. The fount on your blog is very easy on the eyes, and I like the one on the Replies page. Nice "aged" "paper", too.
The content? Great. You have to remember that when George W. Bush says "We will fight Terrism", he's not mispronouncing. He really means that you are either with him or with the planet.
